Harbinger of Capablanca''s Doom

I have been critical of Alekhine''s treatment of Capablanca elsewhere, but there is no denying Alekhine''s major artistic and sporting achievement in their 1927 match. I also have trouble buying ranking Capablanca ahead of Alekhine given the latter''s domination of the chess world in the years immediately following the match, a time chess theory was growing and many strong grandmasters were entering the fray. This game shows Alekhine out maneuvering the Cuban in an opening usually considered drawish. The attacking master proves here that his skills were very much broader,
